The so-called blood type diet has been around for more than two decades. As its name suggests, it consists of eating foods based on your blood type. In this article, we’ll provide a quick overview of the blood type diet basics and see how effective it really is.
In 1996, Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo came up with the concept of this diet. He believed that each of the four ABO blood types carried a unique group of genetic traits. According to him, these traits also included the types of foods that helped our ancestors prosper.
Based on this premise, he developed the following diet plan:
No studies were able to prove the positive health effects of the blood type diet. But one study found that eating a type-A diet helped improve health markers in a group of people. However, the effects were the same regardless of their blood type.
That’s likely because all four diet plans focus on healthy foods and eliminate highly processed junk foods. As such, any of them could mark an improvement over the traditional Western diet.
There’s no scientific evidence to back up the basic premise of this diet. Still, because it combines healthy foods, you can try it to see if it works for you. Also, it is always best to talk to a nutritionist before making any major changes to your current diet plan.
